12 foods you can safely eat past their use by date

Three milk bottles indoors on table

My family is obsessed with the "SELL BY DATE" and constantly are throwing things away.  However, here are 12 items you can safely use past the sell by date.

  1. Bread - in fridge - 2 weeks
  2. Hard Cheese - hard cheese can be used well past the sell by date.  If there is mold, just cut it off.
  3. Yogurt - generally 2 weeks but if it smells bad don't take chance
  4. Eggs - 3 weeks
  5. Cookies - 3 weeks
  6. Chocolate - no harm eating well past the sell by date - worse case break up and use in cookies
  7. Pasta - one year
  8. Preserved foods - pickles, beets (anything salted or acidic vinegar)- 2 years
  9. Canned Beans - 4 years
  10. Alcohol - indefinitely!  AWESOME
  11. Frozen veggies - indefinitely!
  12. Milk - as long as it doesn't smell and it tastes fine there is no need to worry about the sell by date.
